BgArt News Blog was first started waaaaaaaay back in 2004 as a way for me to keep up with what was happening in the art world. I posted in fits and starts up until 2010 and then just stopped posting. The site was getting a lot of visitors and I really did enjoy looking after the blog.. and I don’t really know why I stopped, but I did, and now I’m back. July 1, 2013.

Self Portrait painting

I mostly just look for interesting stories online, people send me stuff, or I share exhibitions I see. So just give me a buzz if you think people might be interested in your event/art/ideas, etc and I might share it.

I’m a painter based in Australia. Here’s my artist website which is very old and neglected or send me a friend request on Facebook here. BgArt News Blog also has a Facebook page here. And Google+ too.

Use the Contact Form here if you wish to share an idea or press release.

Thanks for stopping by

    Hey Dion,
    I just stumbled across your blog and see you’ve recently come back to it! Congratulations!
    I was wondering if you would be interested in posting about my work. You can check it out at http://www.carmeldebreuil.com . I have had a lot of interest in my work in the last couple of years and am showing in several galleries, with sales from Australia, Canada, the US, Europe and Asia. As an emerging artist, I’m always looking for new possibilities to get my work out there and get new exposure. I thank you in advance for taking the time to consider my work and of course, if there is anything I can help you with – questions, bio, cv, or images – please let me know for sure!

    • Hi Carmel. Thanks. Nice work. Do keep in touch. Blogs are hungry beasts and they always need feeding. :-)
